(i) 9801

(ii) 99856

(iii) 998001

(iv) 657666025

Solution:

(ii) Possible one’s digit in the square root of 99856 is 6.

(iii) Possible one’s digit in the square root of 998001 is 1 or 9.

(iv) Possible one’s digit in the square root of 657666025 is 5.

Question 2.

Without doing any calculation, find the numbers which are surely not perfect squares.

(i) 153

(ii) 257

(iii) 408

(iv) 441

Solution:

Since the number which ends with digit 2, 3, 7, 8 are surely not a perfect square.

∴ (i) 153 (ii) 257 (iii) 408 are not perfect square.

Question 3.

Find the square roots of 100 and 169 by the method of repeated subtraction.

Solution:

(I) (i) 100 – 1 = 99

(ii) 99 – 3 = 96

(iii) 96 – 5 = 91

(iv) 91 – 7 = 84

(v) 84 – 9 = 75

(vi) 75 – 11 = 64

(vii) 64 – 13 = 51

(viii) 51 – 15 = 36

(ix) 36 – 17 = 19

(x) 19 – 19 = 0

Repeated subtract of successive odd number starting from 1 gives 0 at 10th step.

Hence √100 = 10

(II) (i) 169 – 1 = 168

(ii) 168 – 3 = 165

(iii) 165 – 5 = 160

(iv) 160 – 7 = 153

(v) 153 – 9 = 144

(vi) 144 – 11 = 133

(vii) 133 – 13 = 120

(viii) 120 – 15 = 105

(ix) 105 – 17 = 88

(x) 88 – 19 = 69

(xi) 69 – 21 = 48

(xii) 48 – 23 = 25

(xiii) 25 – 25 = 0

Repeated subtraction of successive odd number starting from 1 gives 0 at the 13th step

∴ Hence √169 = 13

√324 = 2 × 3 × 3 = 18

Question 7.

The students of Class VIII of a school donated Rs 2401 in all, for Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund. Each student donated as many rupees as the number of students in the class. Find the number of students in the class.

Solution:

Let the number of class VIII students = x

Donation by each student = Rs x.

Total amount collected = x × x = x^{2}

x^{2} = 2401

x = √2401

= \(\sqrt{7 \times 7 \times 7 \times 7}\)

= 7 × 7

= 49

∴ No. of students = 49

Question 8.

2025 plants are to be planted in a garden, in such a way that each row contains as many plants as the number of rows. Find the number of rows and the number of plants in each row.

Solution:

Let the number of plants in each row = x

Number of rows = x

Total plants = x × x = x^{2}

x^{2} = 2025

x = √2025

= \(\sqrt{\underline{3 \times 3} \times \underline{3 \times 3} \times \underline{5 \times 5}}\)

= 3 × 3 × 5

= 45

∴ Number of plants = 45

Number of rows 45

Question 9.

Find the smallest square number that is divisible by each of the numbers 4, 9, and 10.

Solution:

Find the LCM of 4, 9, 10

LCM = 2 × 2 × 5 × 9 = 180

180 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 5

5 is unpaired. So, multiply the number 180 by 5 to make it a perfect square.

180 × 5 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 5

900 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 5

900 is a perfect square. Hence, the smallest perfect square number, divisible by 4, 9, and 10 is 900.

Question 10.

Find the smallest square number that is divisible by each of the numbers 8, 15, and 20.

Solution:

Find the LCM of 8, 15, 20

LCM = 2 × 2 × 5 × 2 × 3 = 120

2, 3, 5 are unpaired. So, to make these paired, we multiply 120 by 2, 3, and 5.

120 × 2 × 3 × 5 = 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3

3600 = 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3

3600 is a perfect square. Hence, the smallest perfect square number, divisible by 8, 15, 20 is 3600.
